Are your roots growing deep in Christ?
Today on the blog I just wanted to share a few discipleship resources that I have participated in (or have heard good things about) and have helped to grow my faith - btw, this is NOT an ad for any of these, just one beggar looking to tell the other beggars where to find the Bread of Life! Take a look and be blessed:

I did this program in full. It was 10 weeks with a week out in Windsor, Colorado, and it was especially helpful for me when I was going through a DARK season of depression (I've thought about doing it again) since they've shortened it to be only like 30-45 mins over 5 weeks - love that group!

"Let your roots grow down into him, and let your lives be built on him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness." - Colossians 2:7, NLT
I heard on Jennie Allen's podcast recently this quote: "The habit of reading Scripture is measured in years, not in a one-time experience" - so, that's my encouragement to you...keep pursuing Jesus with whatever resources you can find friends!
Tell me, what resources have helped you grow in your faith?
